Ratings for Dr. George Vilos
Complete waste of time. I am diagnoses with pcos and endometriosis. I went to him as he is the supposed expert in the city on endo. I had 2 visits with him and never went back. 1st visit I had a female resident. She was amazing. Did an exam, explained everything to me and was very thorough. I went back 3 months later for a follow up and see how I was handling the new birth control. Not once did he look up from his clipboard. He did not examine or look at me. Told me all my side effects were in my head and I was completely fine. This was 10 or so years ago. Ultimately my FAMILY DOCTOR found the best birth control for me that got rid of my daily endo pain. Vilos is not worth the time.
I have been going to see Dr Vilos for infertility issues for the past two years. What stresses me out with every visit is his secretary Denise who is extremely rude. Every time that I have called to make an appointment she gives me attitude and treats me like a child. Her voicemail states that she would rather have you call back durning business hours instead of leaving a message but she never answers the phone so I ended up leaving a message anyway. When she calls back she sounds super annoyed. Every time I’ve asked her a question she was short. Twice I have called in due to endometriosis pain and I wanted to book an appointment that week with Dr. Vilos and she told me to go to a walk in or to see my Family doctor. I told her that it takes me two weeks to see my family dr and her response was well then go to a Walk In Clinic. I’m seriously debating going to another place to complete my treatment just so that I never have to deal with Denise again.
I had Dr Vilos do my tubal ligation reversal. I was very happy with everything from start to finish. It's only been a few days but looking forward to see what the future holds! He said if I was pregnant in 6 months to come back and see him. Very nice man!
I have had two surgeries with Dr Vilos. Compared with other gynaecologists I have seen I found he listened to my concerns and always explain all my options. I have found his administrative assistant to be helpful and the resident to be knowledgeable and compassionate. Both times my care and recovery were exceptional and I am glad for the referral to Dr Vilos.
I found Dr. Vilos to be very knowledgeable and had patiences with me as I asked many questions on my upcoming procedure. I was very nervous the day of my surgery about everything and he made me feel like I was in great hands with him and his staff.
Terrible. He told me several times I was getting a laparoscopic surgery, described a laparoscopic surgery and then when I went for my consultation before my surgery, it said Laparotomy. He described it as a laparoscopic variation as two small incisions, rather than three, and one would be larger because he needed more elbow room. It was one large incision. He apparently doesn't do laparoscopic surgeries but uses them as an analogy for laparotomies. He laughed at me when I annoyed that he had given me the wrong information for months. It's apparently 'just an incision' and I was apparently overreacting. Laparoscopic procedures typically have shorter recovery times than a Laparotomy or a mini-laparotomy. He told me I'd be out that day, but then changed it the day of to tell me I'd be out in two or three days. It was impossible for me to book time off work because I had been told it was a day procedure for months. I had been waiting 8 months, I was in constant pain which he refused to believe me. He talked over me and told me I should trust him. When I'd talk, he say 'trust me, trust me, trust me'. He refused to listen to my concerns about medical options. He giggled when I mentioned I had sexual pain. He didn't want to hear that I have Von Willebrands. It's also super weird that he works with his son. He lets his fellows and residents do a lot of for work him. So Half time time the fellow will tell you one thing, and he'll tell you another. Vilos told me it was laparoscopic, whether he changed it to a Laparotomy so one of his students or his son could perform the surgery, I don't know. It's my body, I had a right to be informed about which surgery I was getting. There was no way I could give informed consent, because I constantly given the wrong information.
